[My baby...turns 4 tomorrow]

Tristin, that is, my second baby! I can't believe he's going to be FOUR. Where has time gone?

I don't want to say that I favor any of my boys but Tristin has such a special place in my heart. He is my miracle baby in such a different way than the other 2 (isn't that cool that they all have such a cool story to their conceptions/birth). We tried and tried to get pregnant with Tristin...and after a little over a year, we finally did it with the help of a little pill called Clomid. I found out around this time that I had Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). My life has been different ever since.

While Tristin was in my tummy, they told me his legs were short....then around 38 weeks they told me that he was small...and he still is! I worry about him...about his health (he has asthma, they think and allergies) and his growth.

He's still so tiny, still wears mostly 2T pants (although I did try on his 2T jeans from last winter and they are too short...so, I need to find some of those jeans that you can change the waist so they won't fall off of him!).

Anyway, he's my cuddler and my happy boy. He tells me he loves me out of the blue (something that Anakin rarely ever does or did!), he appreciates the things we do...he's just so different than Anakin!!! I love Anakin, don't get me wrong...I just tend to appreciate those differences more now than ever. I try hard not to point those out to make him sad though. Anakin has so many good qualities too.

Here is Tristin at 2 days old, still in the hospital:

and here he is just last weekend. He still has his cute cheeks. :) Happy Birthday, Buddy! I love you! You'll always be my Sweet Pea!We've got big plans for tomorrow (not really). We're going to McD's for lunch...he's eating, not me! ;) Then, to Tobin's Pizza (our favorite) for a free pizza and cookie for his birthday! LOVE TOBIN'S! Then, afterwords, it's his "Superman Birthday Party"! We're having Ryan, Paige and Morgan (our neighbor kids) over for cake and ice cream and some party favors. Tristin is so excited...and you know what? So am I!

He got to celebrate his birthday at pre-school today too! He's one happy boy!

[I like being a loser!]

Down 13.4 lbs in 6 weeks! I did this layout for the contest at JenWilsonDesigns.com. You can see my loss in my face (still have a double chin, but my face is thinner).

[I won!]

I won a prize in round 2 of Jen's contest last week! I won a $20 gift certificate to www.ginamillerdesigns.com. :) Here is my winning lo: ugh, it won't let me post it! I'll try again tomorrow!

I know I'm late, but HAPPY BIRTHDAY TRISTIN! We almost share one! I was the 11th.
I lost all of my bookmarks (MAJOR pain in the rear to re-collect!!)and your other blog's address. Could you resend it to me? I liked that blog.
Cool layout, too. Congrats on the contest.
OK - enough for now.
